I was canvasing for good foundation brushes when I tweeted Pammy aka hawaiianpunchie.blogspot.com if she had any good alternatives for the Mac 190. She told me that I should give Marionnaud a try so after an hour I walked over to podium anddddd
N 4 Foundation brush P 299
N 3 Blusher brush P 199
N9 Standard Eyeliner P 199
*I can’t find my receipt so this is just a rough estimate.
These babies are inexpensive and AMAZINGLY SOFT. Let me stress on how SOFT and how GREAT THEY PICK UP PRODUCT. CAPSSS.
I was so impressed when I touched the bristles. HNG. (Yes I am that impressed considering its less than 300 bucks)
Truth be told I wasn’t expecting much since the usual M brushes are a hit and miss but I was so contented with all of them.
Things you should know:
The Foundation brush is a bit thin but it evenly distributes the product. I find that a good thing since it can easily glide liquid foundation into difficult parts (outer corners of nose, eyelids etc etc). The lack of density works for me. I find it useful that it won’t absorb too much product and isnt a bitch to clean out.
The Blush brush sheds but I read that most brushes do during the first few uses. It picks up and applies product amazingly. It is great for contouring obv.
The Eyeliner brush is superb! Its a bit thin so you can control your strokes easily but has enough density so that you wouldn’t have a hard time blending.
*The only problem I have with these brushes besides the first time shedding are the rubber Nars like handles idk what to call it. IT ATTRACTS DIRT. UGH. I hate it
~*Pictures*~ I apologize if my nails are like shit. I was swatching nail polishes and I forgot to re do them. /beautybloggerfail
P.s GOD I WANT CHANEL PERIDOT. I have bad luck with nail polish though.
OT: I’m deciding if I should move to wordpress so I can finally go mainstream aka tell my friends about it since it should be less messier (like this) and I would have my thoughts organized and so with my posts. It’s hard to work it in though. So before I get a domain I better make up my mind.
I really should proof read this but nah. Sorry internet!
